Are you opening your own business? Or maybe you already run your own business or office and are in the process of decorating? If you answered yes to either question window coverings are surely on your list of furnishing items.
Offices, buildings, and institutions generally have many large windows that require blinds or drapes. Depending on the space you’re furnishing it is important to take note of the type of work, clientele, and patrons that frequent the business in order to determine the type and style of window treatment that will best suit your needs.
For example, if you are an education or health institution you may want to consider anti-microbial blinds and drapes with flame retardant treatments. If your business houses expensive products you may want to investigate options that could help increase your building or office security. If you have meeting rooms with large windows you may want something designed to keep out harmful UV rays and also help to regulate temperatures.
When looking at coverings, remember that what you purchase can also help with your building or office’s overall energy efficiency. Blinds and drapes can help to reduce operating costs by controlling the amount of light entering a room or heat leaving. One option you may want to consider is motorized blinds. These treatments can be pre-programmed to open and close throughout the day, helping to regulate temperature while eliminating one item (closing and opening blinds) from your to do list.
Assessing your business needs and clientele is a good starting point when considering window treatment options. Once you know your requirements you will also want to address your budget. A qualified consultant can assist you in finding the right blind, drape or shutter that will perfectly fit your needs and price point.
